The Sumitomo gear reduction boxes, available from Wagss , have an overload capacity of 500%. The external gear in the Cyclo drive gear reduction box has an epitrochoidal tooth profile, which provides a high contact ratio, and the teeth cannot be sheared off. The gear has the strength to withstand overload shocks that break the teeth of ordinary reducers.
Cyclo speed reducers are reliable and have extended operating lifetime. This reliability is due to the high material specifications, component quality controls, assembly procedures and the absence of sliding friction.
Cyclohousings are made of gray cast iron, except for the two smallest sizes, which are aluminium. All the power transmitting components are made from 52100 bearing grade steel that is hardened and ground.
With low inertia, the Cyclo speed reducer is suitable for frequent start-stop-reversing duties in combination with an adjustable frequency inverter. When compared with the sliding tooth contact of conventional gearing, the rolling contact of the Cyclo system reduces noise levels.
